GOSPEL (Matthew 24:37-44)

REFLECTION ON TODAY’S READING – HOW PREPARED ARE YOU?
The three readings of today have
the same message, which is the message of salvation.
In the first reading, Prophet
Isaiah prophesied about the house of God, that it will be a place of rest,
refuge and consolation. People will long to come to God’s house.
Do you long for God’s house?
How do you dress while coming to the house of God – Seductively or Gorgeously?
Do you have regard for the house of God?
In the second reading, Saint Paul
advises you to be awake for your salvation has drawn nearer than before. He
also advises you to desist from immorality and put on Jesus Christ.
How do you prepare for your salvation?
Do you still live a life of immorality?
How close are you to Jesus Christ?
The gospel of today stresses on the
message of the second reading. In the gospel, Jesus Christ himself warns you to
be careful and prepare for his coming. He also stressed on Rapture when he
“Two men will be in the field; one is taken and one is left. Two women
will be grinding at the mill; one is taken and one is left.”
Another reason why you should
always be prepared is that you don’t know when your own rapture will take
place. Don’t wait to hear the sound of the trumpet. Once you die, your own
rapture has taken place.
If God comes today, where will you spend your eternity – Heaven or
Do you believe that rapture is real and how do you prepare for it?
Are you waiting to hear the sound of the trumpet before you repent?
Do you know that there is no repentant in the grave?
